Grammatical Morphology Deficits in Spanish-Speaking Children with Specific Language Impairment.
Bedore, Lisa M.; Leonard, Laurence B.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v44 n4 p905-24 Aug 2001
Relative to both same-age peers and younger typically developing children with similar mean lengths of utterance, 15 Spanish-speaking preschool children with specific language impairment showed more limited use of several different grammatical morphemes. These limitations were most marked for noun-related morphemes such as adjective-agreement inflections and direct object clitics. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
